US Amry “Preserve The Union” Tee – Value $15?

Like Nerd Block, each delivery comes with an exclusive shirt about, or featuring, the US Army. The shirt prominently features the quote “The Union Must And Shall Be Preserved” – which was derived from Andrew Jackson and prominently featured during the Civil War.

RAPDOM Polar Fleece Tactical Gloves – Value $10 on Amazon

The next item is a pair of tactical gloves from RAPDOM.

These are a nice thick fleece that will keep your palms warm while leaving your fingers free.

The one thing I’m not sure about is how they determined what size gloves to include – mine were a large, but I’m not sure if it varied since you can only select a shirt size.

US Army Defending Freedom Flag – Value $15 on Amazon

The next item is a 3×5 flag.

These can definitely work for people on active duty or just supporting a family member!

Verdict: My values add up to $63 – that’s really good value for an all-in cost of $40. I can see this as a good gift for members of the US Army, Veterans, or for family supporting a loved one. It will be interesting to see if they also begin to include exclusive merchandise in the future!

  1. Hey, I can see that the Navy, Air Force and Marines subscriptions are finally live! Have anyone here already enrolled in one of these subscriptions? Are they as good as the Army one?

  2. What a neat idea. A lot of people are pretty branch loyal though

    • There are subscription for different branches – Marines and Navy are marked as ‘Coming Soon’ on the site. The Army subscription is just he first one that is available.
